Artist opens first solo exhibition after 10-year hiatus

'Light' is the first solo Exhibition of Nguyen Tan Cuong after 10 years.

Entitled Light, the exhibition, which has been nurtured for nearly a decade, is the first solo event of the artist after 10 years.

After first making acquaintance with the easel in 1965 when he was 12 years old, Cuong has pursued painting and graduated from the National College of Fine Arts in Sài Gòn (now HCM City) in 1973.

Since the 1980s, the artist has been practicing abstract art but it was not until 1991 that he devoted his full attention to this art form. Since then, the style has become a trend throughout the art community nationwide.

 

Whenever talking about the development of abstract style in Vietnam, Cuong is one of the key figures.

Light will be opened to public from 5pm and last until January 20, 2020. Cuci Art Studio is located on Level 2, 25 Hang Bun Street, Ba Dinh District. VNS
